Northern Swords 2015 – 15s and 17s – Rotorua Selection

Kia ora Whanau, Congratulations to those who have made the selection team for the Northern Swords 15s and 17s in Rotorua this week. Apologies for the delay in getting this information to you, it was a very hard decision to make and they are only allowed a maximum of 25 players. Apologies to those players with hyphenated names, I have had to shorten this in order to fit onto one page. Also included in this information is What to Bring and an Itinerary.
